zbrubaker probably mean this product:
http://www.rainx.com/product/glass-a...ain-repellent/
Don't know if that brand is available in France but there is probably something equivalent in Europe. Breaking away from the water is always a problem with micro size float planes, there is some good ideas about that in this thread:

Olivier,

Beautiful planes. I hope you do some build logs in the future.

Since you're flying off water, what waterproofing do you do?
